Back to What Passes for Normal

It was back to work today for me. Whee.

And back to my regularly scheduled knitting projects. I don’t believe that I ever showed you that I completed my first Bamboo sock:

And a close-up:

I finished that last week before I left for Oklahoma. And I’ve made some decent progress on the second sock:

I’m also knitting on my Two-Thirds shawl, though you probably can’t really tell that I’ve made any progress, given its blob-like nature.

Last night I gave Miss Lucy a special gift:

Mousie102709

This is a mousie knit by Keri. The pattern is from my “what to do with leftover sock yarn” class, and Keri whipped out two mice at blazing speed. She says her favorite part of the pattern was the direction “decrease for the butt.”

The mouse is a gift for Lucy from Keri’s boy kitty Slick, a demonstration of his undying love for her.

Isn’t that romantic?

I made better progress than I expected on Girasole. I’ve got between two-thirds and three-quarters of the edging done. Here is what remains:

Someone here approves of Girasole.

She has made herself right at home.

Doesn’t she look comfy?

I don’t know how I will break it to her . . .
